Resource Spotlight

As we approach Lent, one of the most meaningful seasons of the church year, consider one of these studies for small group or church-wide use. 

Two resources that are new to Discovery Place (reserve early, as copies are limited):

What Makes a Hero? The Death-Defying Ministry of Jesus – Looking at pop culture heroes through the lens of faith, author Matt Rawle shows how Jesus turned the concept of hero on its head. Learn how Jesus redefines what it means to be a hero.  (6 sessions. Includes DVD, book, leader guide. Children and youth books also available.)





Restored: Finding Redemption in Our Mess – Author Tom Berlin encourages us to reflect and meditate on our own brokenness, showing us that it is only when we focus on the cross as a place to surrender control that we can leave our mess and find true redemption. (6 sessions. Includes DVD, book, leader guide. Youth book also available.)




Other studies available include:


Final Words from the Cross – Adam Hamilton examines Christ’s dying hours and His final words as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of those who stood near the cross. (6 sessions. Includes DVD, book, and leader guide.)






24 Hours that Changed the World– We travel to the Holy Land with Adam Hamilton, to visit the sites where the earth-shaking events of the last 24 hours of Jesus’ life took place.  Each session is designed to help us experience and understand the significance of Jesus' suffering and death in a new way.(7 sessions. Includes DVD, book, leader guide, and 40 Days of Reflection booklet.)






The God We Can Know: Exploring the “I Am” Sayings of Jesus – Author Rob Fuquay explores the “I am” statements for Jesus found in the gospel of John, to help us answer the most essential question in the Christian faith: “Who do you say I am?”  (7 sessions. Includes DVD and book.)







Creed: What Christians Believe and Why – Adam Hamilton believes that for Christians and others seeking faith, powerful answers are contained in the Apostle’s Creed. In this study we learn not only what Christians believe, but why it matters. (6 sessions. Includes DVD, book, and leader guide.)





Renegade Gospel: The Rebel Jesus - Jesus didn't come to start a religion. The rebel Jesus came with a renegade gospel to start a revolution. We are invited to be a part. In this study, author Mike Slaughter presents Jesus and his challenging message. (6 sessions. Includes DVD, book, and leader guide.)




Other resources you may want to consider: A Place at the Table: 40 Days of Solidarity with the Poor, John: The Gospel of Light and Life, Faith Lessons The Path to the Cross, The Easter Experience, and Faith Lessons on the Death & Resurrection of the Messiah.
